Julian Nagelsmann has admitted that Harry Kane's price tag makes a potential move from Bayern Munich unlikely.

The Bundesliga champions recently lost Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona and are on the hunt for a new striker, though they did sign Liverpool forward Sadio Mane earlier in the transfer window.

Kane is a name which has popped up in conjunction with Bayern - chief executive Oliver Kahn even called the England international a 'dream of the future' - but head coach Nagelsmann has rubbished talk of a move happening anytime soon.

He said: “He’s very expensive, that’s the problem. He could score a lot in the Bundesliga. I don’t know the price, but it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. We’ll see what happens in the future.'

Bild claim Bayern are instead planning a 2023 move for Kane, having asked the striker's 'environment' whether a move to Bavaria could be a possibility.

Kane's current contract in north London expires in 2024 and 90min understands neither he nor Tottenham are in a rush to finalise a new deal. The England captain is happy under Antonio Conte with the club back in the Champions League and making moves in the transfer window.

However, Bayern's interest may well increase Kane's leverage in contract discussions when he and Spurs eventually sit down to discuss new terms.
